DID YOU KNOW >

Mentoring

Every project in a mentorship program has an emphasis on publishing—the “currency” of science—with a view toward high-impact journals 

DID YOU KNOW >

Outnumbered

It has been determined that the human body contains more bacteria than cells of its own.

DID YOU KNOW >

Bone Loss

The bone loss in periodontal disease is due almost entirely to the exaggerated host immune response elicited to fight oral bacteria.

DID YOU KNOW >

Oral and Systemic Disease

Oral biology research at UB has provided provocative evidence that oral diseases such as periodontal disease can contribute to the initiation or progression of such systemic diseases as myocardial infarction, stroke, diabetes mellitus, and pneumonia.

The Oral Biology program met all my needs. They were very, very accommodating. There was a diversity of people there. Everything that you needed was there. If you had a problem, you could always go to another faculty member to get your question resolved. There was a lot of different expertise.

A lot of my training and views on clinical periodontics especially are based on my experiences in Oral Biology in Buffalo. The program allowed me to seek training outside the department because I wanted different expertise.

Dr. Edgerton is trying to encourage all of us to think for ourselves and lead us to the correct way. We talk daily. I like this department a lot. The students, the faculty—everybody knows everybody else. We always talk together, what is going on with your research. It’s kind of a big family, and the faculty is very easygoing.

We all learned from each other—students, postdocs and faculty alike. Our journal clubs were pretty intense. My classmates went on to very distinguished academic/research careers. We were taught to be intellectually rigorous and unafraid to try new things.
